Welcome back Tony!

Welcome back, Alf!! Pardon me while I go grab some coffee....

And I'm back, semi-caffeinated and ready to go....
  Tue. 6/5/12 12:00pm listener james from westwood:

good tuesday all. tony, we'll have to make do with the default theme of fine rarities from the coulter archives. works for me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/5/12 12:01pm tonyc:

Hey there, listener James!

Hola, Hugo!
  Tue. 6/5/12 12:19pm Ricardo Montalban:

There's talking all over this music! Did someone forget to demagnetize their tape hiss?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/5/12 12:20pm tonyc:

No, your speaker didn't just blow: for some strange reason, the first part of this Annea Lockwood piece is only in one channel.
  Tue. 6/5/12 12:21pm Hugo:

Love these hisstorical recordings!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/5/12 12:21pm tonyc:

Hey Ricardo! Nope - someone forgot to demagnetize their dog....
  Tue. 6/5/12 12:22pm northguineahills:

cool stuff.......
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/5/12 12:23pm tonyc:

Thanks, northguineahills ... and greetings!
  Tue. 6/5/12 12:23pm Jimmy Carl Black (versus the Central Scrutinizer):

Hi boys and girls, I'm Jimmy Carl Black and I'm the Indian of the group, and I'm looking forward to some wildly creative, innovative and obscure music!

And I am the central scrutinizer (but you can call me Frank), and I pretend to enjoy that sort of thing but really I like to play never ending guitar solos, discuss ugly parts of the body and get very hung up!
  Tue. 6/5/12 12:24pm listener james from westwood:

that kitty's motor is revving!

Hey there Jimmy CB!!

I'm guessing this text is Gertrude Stein. Anyone know for sure?
  Tue. 6/5/12 12:26pm Jimmy Carl Black (versus the Central Scrutinizer):

Do you like Ivor Cutler, Tony?
  Tue. 6/5/12 12:27pm Hugo:

Don Preston is the grandmother of the group.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/5/12 12:27pm tonyc:

Yes indeed -- very much.
  Tue. 6/5/12 12:32pm Hugo:

Was there ever a vol. 1 of Life in a Scotch Sitting Room? I always wondered about that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/5/12 12:33pm tonyc:

Not sure....
  Tue. 6/5/12 12:33pm Ike:

Sounding great!
  Tue. 6/5/12 12:34pm Jimmy Carl Black (versus the Central Scrutinizer):

nice vibes!

Ike!!! (Thankee.)

wow! great stuff on the show today. wish i didn't have to head out for the day...
  Tue. 6/5/12 12:35pm Doug S.:

So great to hear this Cleve stuff. Thanks Tony!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/5/12 12:35pm tonyc:

Charlie and Doug! Glad to see you both here....
  Tue. 6/5/12 12:40pm Ricardo Montalban:

I recently picked up a copy of the new Don Preston LP of old sounds from the Garrick Theatre. Pretty weird. I enjoyed it immensely.
  Tue. 6/5/12 12:42pm Jimmy Carl Black (versus the Central Scrutinizer):

after watching LangLang, Elton and Paul McCartney last night at the Queen's Jubilee concert, its great to hear music thats really pushing the boundaries out!
  Tue. 6/5/12 12:43pm Opal the Hot Little Bitch:

Jimmy Carl, did you see Grace Jones do her hula hoop routine?
  Tue. 6/5/12 12:44pm Jimmy Carl Black (versus the Central Scrutinizer):

thought she was mad, sad and very bad singing!
  Tue. 6/5/12 12:45pm Hugo:

Speaking of Scotch, I'm contemplating joining the local Single Malt Whisky Club. Had some exquisite samples last night ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/5/12 12:47pm tonyc:

The channel separation in this track is even weirder than in the Annea Lockwood -- do not be alarmed ... all is as it should be.
  Tue. 6/5/12 12:47pm Rance Mohammitz:

Hugo: the wonderful single malt brands will wreck you for blends forever. I can't even stand Johnny Walker Black anymore unless it's drowning in Coke or similar soda ad I'm a cheap (Scottish) bastard.
  Tue. 6/5/12 12:57pm Ricardo Montalban:

I live in Washington State, just across the river from Portland OR, and we just this week started doing liquor sales in grocery stores (rather than state-run liquor stores). It's pretty weird to see people with grocery carts with kids in them, with giant jugs of cheap whiskey in them.
The stores pull people in with low prices on the actual liquor but them hit them with ridiculous taxes at the register. It's pretty surreal.
  Tue. 6/5/12 12:58pm Carmichael:

Hiya Tony, hey everyone. Finally made it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/5/12 12:59pm tonyc:

Hiya, Carmichael!
  Tue. 6/5/12 12:59pm Hugo:

Let's see: Ardbeg Very Young (1998), Benriach 1966, Benriach 1976, Dufftown 1982 Old Malt Cask, Glenmorangie Nectar D'Or and Old Pulteney 12 years. Absolutely wonderful!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/5/12 1:00pm tonyc:

Coming up next: an unreleased tape piece by Bernard Parmegiani -- which can be listened to with or without scotch.
  Tue. 6/5/12 1:02pm Carmichael:

Ricardo, do you know the town of Elma? I have relatives there.
  Tue. 6/5/12 1:03pm Ricardo Montalban:

No? Where is that?
  Tue. 6/5/12 1:04pm Ricardo Montalban:

Oh, that's around Gray's Harbor. I've only been in that area a couple of times. It's lovely.
  Tue. 6/5/12 1:05pm northguineahills:

  Tue. 6/5/12 1:06pm Hugo:

  Tue. 6/5/12 1:06pm Carmichael:

Grays Harbor County, west of Olympia. Tiny tiny place.
  Tue. 6/5/12 1:07pm Ricardo Montalban:

This is wonderful, Tony!
  Tue. 6/5/12 1:07pm Stanley:

Wow, just tuned in to a terrific Scott Miller track and discussion of the joys of single malts. @Rance - completely agree with you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/5/12 1:15pm tonyc:

Coming up around 1:30: Chris Newman & Meadow House.
  Tue. 6/5/12 1:15pm Stanley:

Have I jinxed the playlist?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/5/12 1:18pm tonyc:

@Stanley: Not what you mean, I know, but playlist comments have been acting up for me today -- there's some kind of weird delay going on (for me at least). Anyone else having problems?
  Tue. 6/5/12 1:23pm Jimmy Carl Black (versus the Central Scrutinizer):

Hey Hugo,
recommend Glenrothes for a spicy sweet whiskey
  Tue. 6/5/12 1:25pm Jimmy Carl Black (versus the Central Scrutinizer):

up perescope!
  Tue. 6/5/12 1:26pm Jimmy Carl Black (versus the Central Scrutinizer):

what that tense submarine film called U-BOAT something?
  Tue. 6/5/12 1:26pm Hugo:

Then I guess you're not going to like the Ardbeg malts.
  Tue. 6/5/12 1:28pm Jimmy Carl Black (versus the Central Scrutinizer):

are very sweet or very burned taste, Hugo?
  Tue. 6/5/12 1:35pm Hugo:

They advertise it as being the smokiest, peatiest of all The Islay malts. I can't say whether its the most in that style, but it's certainly smoky and peaty. An acquired taste.
  Tue. 6/5/12 1:36pm Jimmy Carl Black (versus the Central Scrutinizer):

yes I'm more Highland Park.
  Tue. 6/5/12 1:40pm listener james from westwood:

that parmegani hit the spot. ready for some spumoni!
  Tue. 6/5/12 1:40pm Ricardo Montalban:

AH, for a second I thought it was going to be the Portland music fixture Chris Newman.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/5/12 1:41pm tonyc:

@ Ricardo: Don't know that Chris Newman. This one is at times a bit like a more acid version of Ivor Cutler.
  Tue. 6/5/12 1:43pm Jimmy Carl Black (versus the Central Scrutinizer):

Tony, ever heard Vivian Stanshall records - Sir Henry at Rawlinson End? (film is good also)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/5/12 1:45pm tonyc:

Yep -- have heard those records, which are definitely fun. Also have a horrible-quality dub of the movie, which I haven't seen yet.
  Tue. 6/5/12 1:47pm Jimmy Carl Black (versus the Central Scrutinizer):

found the dvd recently for less than $3 - bargain even though it is only about 1 hour long! Trevor Howard plays Sir Henry.
  Tue. 6/5/12 1:50pm Jimmy Carl Black (versus the Central Scrutinizer):

In fact I remember in the early 80s when I started listening to the John Peel Show, every 3-4 weeks there would either be an Ivor Cutler or Sir Henry session recorded for the show, along with other Peely favourites like Bogshed, the Fall or the Wedding Present.
  Tue. 6/5/12 1:50pm Hugo:

Highland Park is on the fall schedule, so looking forward to that.
  Tue. 6/5/12 1:53pm Hugo:

Funny, I was just listening to Vivian Stanshall - Men opening umbrellas ahead - the other night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/5/12 1:55pm tonyc:

Chris Newman's band is sometimes known as "Janet Smith"... though not on this occasion.
  Tue. 6/5/12 1:56pm Hugo:

Ivor Cutler was on Peel's Night Ride in the late 60s. You can find the entire Sir Henry series online. I've never seen the movie.
  Tue. 6/5/12 1:59pm holland oats:

i'm late, what'd i miss
  Tue. 6/5/12 1:59pm northguineahills:

Ahhhh, mushrooms on TOAST! I though he was saying COKE! gives me and idea...... for toast....
  Tue. 6/5/12 2:00pm Ricardo Montalban:

We were all drinking single-malt scotches, eating veal parmegiani, and now we're doing mushrooms.
  Tue. 6/5/12 2:00pm Brian in UK:

@Stanley I still don't know what I want but I want it now.
@ Hugo the film is poor, in that it never quite captures the essence of Rawlinson End but worth it for Trevor Howard.
  Tue. 6/5/12 2:01pm conrad:

hey Tony! Any chance of posting an mp3 of "Wanker Prize" on da blog? Love it...tho I shutter to think what a 'wanker prize' would actually be...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/5/12 2:02pm tonyc:

Hey there, Holland Oats and Conrad!
  Tue. 6/5/12 2:02pm Ricardo Montalban:

I was thinking the same thing as Conrad.
It's a lovely tune, innit?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/5/12 2:03pm tonyc:

@Conrad & Ricardo: Probably wouldn't be able to post mushrooms, with or without toast, unfortunately....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/5/12 2:04pm tonyc:

I mean "wanker prize"!
  Tue. 6/5/12 2:05pm Ricardo Montalban:

That Chris Newman stuff is pretty awesome. I had never heard of him before.
  Tue. 6/5/12 2:05pm Brian in UK:

Broken Promises then, Tony!!
  Tue. 6/5/12 2:05pm Hugo:

Colin Newman was with Wire, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/5/12 2:07pm tonyc:

@ Ricardo M: Chris Newman is great -- has a bunch of very varied releases, all worth seeking out
@ Hugo: Yes, the Wire Newman is Colin
  Tue. 6/5/12 2:08pm Hugo:

Ah, thsi was Chris Newman!
  Tue. 6/5/12 2:09pm Ricardo Montalban:

There is a Chris Newman in Portland who was in seminal NW punk band Napalm Beach and Snowbud and the Flower People.
  Tue. 6/5/12 2:09pm conrad:

Ricardo: There's a C. Newman/janet Smith album on Mutant Sounds that's got a great devolved version of "California Girls."
  Tue. 6/5/12 2:10pm Ricardo Montalban:

The Chris Newman you played reminds me that I recently heard that John Cooper Clark is slated to make a comeback album
  Tue. 6/5/12 2:11pm Ricardo Montalban:

Conrad: thanks! I will be sure to check that out. Sounds fun. Mutant Sounds is great, but it's just so overwhelming in its variety and splendor.
  Tue. 6/5/12 2:16pm Brian in UK:

@Ricardo JCC is back touring. One of his lines I used to love, still do, is 'Speaking as outsider what do you think of the human race?'
  Tue. 6/5/12 2:18pm Hugo:

John Cooper Clarke was terrific!
  Tue. 6/5/12 2:18pm Stanley:

@ Brian - howdy, just finished eating the ol' supper and it "was horrible muck and not enough of it".
  Tue. 6/5/12 2:23pm Hugo:

I see that there is a Punk Britannia series at the beeb. Anyone of the UKers here seen/heard it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/5/12 2:25pm tonyc:

Apologies for today's mega-hissy hiss -- it's sort of unavoidable if I don't want to EQ out too much of the music itself.
  Tue. 6/5/12 2:26pm Brian in UK:

Not much of a television watcher, Hugo.
  Tue. 6/5/12 2:28pm Brian in UK:

Tongues sandwiches but its been in somebody elses mouth.
  Tue. 6/5/12 2:30pm Brian in UK:

Irwin played it a couple of years ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/5/12 2:35pm tonyc:

Coming up after this: Muffins cohorts Logproof, from '77.
  Tue. 6/5/12 2:43pm Hugo:

Nothing left but the hiss ...
  Tue. 6/5/12 2:44pm Jimmy Carl Black (versus the Central Scrutinizer):

Hugo, you can get in on Beeb's iplayer - http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p00s81jz/Punk_Britannia_PrePunk_19721976/
  Tue. 6/5/12 2:46pm Hugo:

No problem, I'm downloading the torrent, part 1 of 3.
  Tue. 6/5/12 2:51pm Jimmy Carl Black (versus the Central Scrutinizer):

what a great show its been, Tony, thought it could'nt get any better, but you keep acing yourself, wow!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/5/12 2:52pm tonyc:

Thanks, Jimmy CB!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/5/12 2:53pm tonyc:

And thanks everybody for listening. I'll be back next week with a regular freeform -- and hiss-lite -- show.
  Tue. 6/5/12 2:54pm Jimmy Carl Black (versus the Central Scrutinizer):

should be hissterical!
  Tue. 6/5/12 2:57pm Doug S.:
